Discover Sint Pieter

You'll feel like you've crossed the border, but you're not quite there yet. Maastricht has a very central location in the Euregio and shares a border with Belgium. But you don't really feel it until you see how the city, and the countryside around it, is layered with a unique mix of foreign influences. 

ENCI quarry

After being closed for a long time, the decision was made on 5 October 2017 to reopen the ENCI quarry to the public. Visitors who want to enjoy nature are welcome again from that moment on. Combine your visit to the ENCI quarry with a lovely walk along St. Pietersberg hill. From Luikerweg, you can climb the hill and walk past Chalet Bergrust. If you fancy a longer walk, keep right at the top of the hill and go on a fantastic stroll to Kanne (Belgium). You can also take in the view over the ENCI quarry and even go to the lookout – complete with binoculars!
